The groundbreaking ceremony for the new Wilbur D. May Tennis Complex starts next week at Bishop Manogue High School. The money for nine-court complex was funded by the Wilbur May Foundation specifically through the efforts of Dixie May.

The new facilities will allow the high school to host a myriad of matches plus region play. The new complex will be completed by September of this year.

Dixie May has been responsible for many local community endeavors including several University of Nevada athletic programs, Nevada boys and girls clubs and many other northern Nevada community interests.

“Dixie had a clear vision of the myriad opportunities these tennis courts could offer not only Bishop Manogue, but the surrounding community as well,” said Mo Kachurak, Bishop Manogue president. He credits the new tennis complex to Dixie’s “commitment and encouragement.”

A small group of tennis-minded parents from Bishop Manogue began a grassroots effort to complete this complex. Along with the help of Dixie May, the tennis courts, originally part of the schools master plan, will be come a reality.
